    momentum is a 3 way herbicide but I assume you're talking about a specific 3-way like lesco's?

    momentum has a high rate of 2, 4-D (which I am a big fan of)
    but your question is...is it better? really depends on the target weed

    its a good product but so is your basic lesco 3 way (or trimec)

    I use the three way for mostly broadleaf weeds plantain, dandelion usual new england pest weeds too many to list.Thanks for the input.Ya I'm licenced in turf and arborist in connecticut everybody seems to ask that question when you have a question on this site.

    I love Lesco 3way Ester II. Ain't a broadleaf around it won't kill. It also stinks to high heaven, and will scorch a lawn in temps over 85 degrees. I liked Momentum until they took the Clorpyralid (sp?) out of it. Not a fan of the Lesco 3 way amine mix. No teeth, in my opinion. I use the 3 way ester when it is cool enough, and Momentum when things get warm.

    Yup, and other clopyralid-containing products like Lontrel,Confront now are labeled for non-residentual use.
